Curvee is a device that aims to let users trim, file and buff their nails at home in as little as three minutes. It's specified that each device, which appears to be about the size of a standard electric razor, contains a flexible nano band for buffing, filing, and trimming. Small LED lights and a magnifying glass have also been included within the device's design to help you see what you're doing as you buff, trim and file.
The cost of Curvee is $29.99 plus $4.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Curvee at the discounted price of only $4.99 for a total price of $39.97.

Before you get started with your Curvee device, you'll need to turn it on by using the pink power switch located on one side. If you're looking at the device from the front, with the bowl for nail shavings sitting closest to you, you should see the pink switch on the right-hand side. You will not need to plug this tool into electricity.
Next, position one hand so that your palm is facing down. Slide one nail past your device's magnifying glass, so the top of it is resting against the nano band. The band will begin to move, in order to gently trim and file your nails, but you can help it out by moving your wrist from side to side at a fairly slow pace.
Once you're done trimming and filing your first nail, turn your device around so you can gently rest that same nail against the other side of the nano band. That side of the band will buff your nail by moving back and forth in the same way as the other side did for trimming and filing.
If your other nails need trimming, filing and buffing, too, repeat the last two steps with those nails. You may only need to spend 30 seconds or so on each nail, but if they're in really rough shape, you can spend as long as you want to. Just remember to use the pink power switch to turn off the device when you're done. If there are any nail shavings in the white bowl at the front, you should also dispose of them to keep the device clean.
Each compact device has a built-in nano band that will begin to move once the device is turned on. The front of this nano band is ideal for trimming and filing since it contains ultra-fine particles that will effectively do that sort of work. On the other hand, the back of the band is covered with a soft coating made of microfiber that's ideal for buffing. This double-sided band is what will enable your Curvee to quickly give you almost a full nail treatment (minus painting), but you must use the correct side of the band for each task. If you were to use the softer side of the band that's made for buffing to try and trim your nails, you likely wouldn't see the results you'd typically be looking for.
Given the fact that this type of device is about the size of an electric razor and doesn't require electricity to run, it's a highly portable thing to have. If you're traveling away from home for the day or longer, and you think your nails might need a touch-up, just toss it in your purse or bag. The Curvee will also only take up a few inches of space, at maximum, in whatever location you choose for its storage at home.
If you use your filing, trimming and buffing tool frequently, your original nano band may wear out over time. Fortunately, each device comes with six identical replacement bands. To find out exactly how to replace your band, consult the instruction manual that came with your device, and keep in mind that the device should be off while you complete the replacement.
Each Curvee contains a built-in magnifying glass at the front that will help you clearly see each nail on a larger-than-average scale as you trim, buff and file it. This may help you zero in on any jagged edges or other imperfections that you might not notice without magnification.
Some small LED lights are also built into each device, with the aim of helping you see each nail you're working with more clearly, especially if you're working in dim light. If you're sitting in your car at nighttime and decide your nails need a touch-up, but you don't want to waste your overhead light's power, you may find these LED lights very handy. The same goes if you'd like to use your device in the evening or at nighttime in a place that has no electric lighting at all.
A container of buffing cream is included with each Curvee tool, and this can be applied before you move to the buffing stage. However, using the cream may make it necessary for you to wipe out your device with a dry cloth (after it's powered off) to get rid of any residue.
As it moves, the nano band within each Curvee device will follow the natural curve of your nails better than most nail care tools can. Nail files are normally very rigid and don't follow a curve at all, while nail clippers don't do much better. Many pairs of clippers are curved at the top, but their curves are based on the curve of an average nail. They won't bend and flex in accordance with the specific shape of your nails as the nano band will.
This type of device is ideal for fingernails, but it isn't suitable for use on your toenails. Perhaps most importantly, you may not even be able to slide a toe into the device, as it's made to accommodate the shape and size of an average adult set of fingers. Even if you were able to get a toe in there, your device may not be able to work with a toenail effectively, since these tend to be a bit thicker than fingernails.
A nail appointment will typically take around 20 minutes or a half-hour, not to mention the time you might spend driving to it and sitting in your salon's waiting room. Therefore, if you're pressed for time, getting a Curvee may be an excellent nail care solution for you, as you'll be able to trim, buff and file in as little as three minutes. Even if you were to take a bit longer, the whole process would be unlikely to take as long as 30 minutes. You'll also be able to pull out this device and use it anywhere without dealing with travel or waiting periods.
